It wasn’t until Michael Crawford appeared in second place in our recent Theatre survey that we realised how long it was since this wonderful actor had been in the West End. Not one month later and here is the news that all Michael Crawford fans have been waiting for!

Michael Crawford, one time star of Barnum and The Phantom of the Opera, starred in the musical adaptation of LP Hartley’s novel, The Go-Between at the Apollo Theatre.
Crawford played Leo Colston, a man who can no longer hide from the memories of his past.
Memories of the gloriously hot summer of 1900 and of his days spent in Norfolk come flooding back. Spending the holidays with the family of his school friend Marcus in their luxurious country home, the young Leo finds himself acting as the go-between for the beautiful upper-class Marian and tenant-farmer Ted who are embroiled in a forbidden secret love affair.
The innocent Leo gets caught up in the adult atmosphere of deceit and manipulation as he risks everything in this deeply moving coming of age story. The events of that summer and the devastating effects of love denied will shape his life forever
